Dionne Warwickand the Fontainebleau Miami Beach have partnered with Damon Elliot Music Group and its Media Division to support the recovery efforts for Hurricane Sandy through a Dec. 15 benefit event as part of the resort’s BleauLive performance series. The performance will benefit the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund.
The impact of Hurricane Sandy on Warwick’s home state of New Jersey, paired with the resort’s personal understanding of these types of natural disasters, transformed this scheduled performance into a recovery effort following Hurricane Sandy’s devastation.
In addition to a seated cabaret-style concert by Warwick and surprise guests, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of live auction experiences to further benefit the families and individuals impacted by Hurricane Sandy, including dinner for 20 by Fontainebleau’s Scott Conant, signature chef of Scarpetta.
This event marks the first BleauLive performance benefiting a charitable cause.
“With our Miami roots, Fontainebleau Miami Beach recognizes the impact hurricanes have on local communities,” said Philip Goldfarb, president and COO, Fontainebleau Miami Beach.“In partnership with the Soffer Family and Dionne Warwick, we will support the United Way in their recovery efforts to assist the families in the areas devastated by the storm.”
The hotel is offering an Iconic Package that’s tied into the performance for $599 per night. It includes deluxe accommodations, two seat passes to the Warwick show, three-course dinner for two the night of the performance, breakfast for two and valet parking.
